Inyo County is approaching the end of its â€śnon-bindingâ€ť agreement to research construction of a consolidated office building. But before moving into the binding phase of the project, it is planning to confer with residents and gauge public opinion.
The Inyo County Board of Supervisors agreed Tuesday to host a series of meetings in August to present the design and financial plan for the building and hear input from residents.
The City of Bishopâ€™s Wye Road Intersection Improvement project will be nearer its final phase once the City Council approves the announcement of construction bids, thus helping to secure increased future traffic safety at the Wye Road/U.S. 6 intersection.
According to Public Works Director David Grah, consideration of opening the bids will be on the Monday, July 22 Council agenda. If approved, open bidding for the $600,000 construction job would advertised the following day. Bid deadline is Thursday, Aug. 22.
